Grant of Probate

When someone has died, those left behind often need to obtain a Grant of Probate in order to be able to deal with the assets and liabilities left, and to be able to distribute what is left to the beneficiaries.

Applying for a Grant of Probate means completing complex court forms, making a comprehensive detailed list of all assets and liabilities, including tax office reference numbers, national insurance numbers, and all sorts of other information. It can be bewildering knowing where to start and where to find all of the information needed. The thing is, the only person who usually has this information has died.

This is where having a My DigiSafe account comes into its own. All of the data needed can be safely and securely digitally stored and provided to your nominated personal representative when needed.

The important data contained in your My Digi Safe account can be simply transferred straight into The Probate Guide software to give your personal representative a flying start.
